Manager Profile

My name is John O'Halloran and I am happy to have joined Dick Pond Athletics as the Manager of the Schaumburg store. I'm looking forward to working with the local running community, the local high school and college athletes and the Dick Pond Fast Track Racing Team. I've been a long-time runner and Dick Pond Athletics customer, participating in running events throughout the Chicago area since the late 1970s, as both a competitor and as a timer. My goal is to continue serving our customers by working with my talented staff to provide the best shoes, clothing and accessories to fulfill each customer's individual needs to help them reach their full potential. I'm looking forward to seeing you in the store or at one of the local races we support. Please contact me if I can assist you in the future at

Busse Woods, Elk Grove Village, IL

Will you walk or run with us to change the world? We believe that as one person comes through the dark tunnel of depression and into the light, the world is changed. We think that when one child's family learns better ways to care for each other, the world becomes a healthier place. When one more person is accepted for what he is, not in terms of his mental illness, we're all changed for the better.
